Meet Our Team

Darren Loveland, DMD

Welcome to our practice, I'm Dr. Loveland! I would like to take some time and introduce myself. I was born in Las Vegas in August 1969 but actually raised in Southern Utah where I graduated from Hurricane High School in 1987. Following high school, I served an LDS mission to Cleveland, Ohio and then attended Southern Utah University in Cedar City, UT with a 4-year academic scholarship. While in Cedar City, I met and married my beautiful wife in 1991. From there, I applied to University of Louisville School of Dentistry. I spend 5 years, including one to gain stated residency, in gorgeous Louisville (pronounced "Loo-vull") KY.

While in dental school, I conducted initial research involving digital radiography and its quality for diagnosis vs. standard film. I was invited to share my findings at the International Dental Research Convention in San Antonio, in March 1994. During my sophomore year of dental school, the Air Force came calling and selected me for a 2-year scholarship. After graduating from dental school in the top 20% of my class, in 1998, my family and I moved to Omaha, NE, to further my dental education with the Air Force. I was one of six residents that participated in the Advanced General Dentistry Residency program at Offutt AFB. Following the residency, I was stationed to serve my country in Rapid City, SD, at Ellsworth AFB. In July 2001, I completed my military service and moved my family to Las Vegas to pursue private practice.

My lovely wife, Tonia, is a wonderful mother to our 5 sons and 2 daughters. We are excited to see our family grow as we have recently become Grandparents. I am currently involved as scout leader to the 12-year-old scouts within my church organization. I enjoy fishing, hiking and board games with my family. I love getting to know our community, one patient at a time and I look forward to meeting you!

 

Erin Longbrake, RDH, BSDH

I graduated from College of Southern Nevada's Dental Hygiene program in 2010. I have over 15 years of dental experience. I began my career in dentistry as a dental assistant. I love all facets of dentistry which reflect my desire for patient satisfaction and commitment to personal attention. I am passionate about oral health and building a relationship with my patients to communicate the importance of good oral habits. Always remember, "brushing and flossing go hand and hand".

I love spending time with family and friends and I enjoy cooking. I love to travel and learn about other cultures and experience the rich history of people and places. A few of the countries I've had an opportunity to visit include Iceland, Ireland, Scotland, England, Belgium and Holland with Ireland being my favorite.

 

Jamie Lunt, RDH

I have been working in the Dental field for over 20 years and I love it! My goal and hope for all my patients is a healthy mouth and a smile they want to share. I feel lucky to work in a field where I get to know and build friendships with so many different people.

When I am not at the office, I'm busy with my 4 kids, husband and dog. My house is definitely loud but fun filled! I enjoy running and biking. I recently crossed an item off my bucket list and finished my first Iron man.

 

Elissa Semeraro, RDH

I was born and raised in Islamorada, an island off of the Florida Keys. I started my career in the dental field in 2000, when I was hired as a dental assistant. In 2003 I was accepted Into the dental hygiene program at St Petersburg college which I graduated from in 2005. Someone once told me, choose a job that you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Dentistry is my passion and I take great pride in being a part of a team that is as passionate as I am in providing the highest quality of care. In my free time I enjoy skeet shooting and cooking. But mostly spending time with my husband and beautiful daughter, traveling and going on new adventures.

I am one of Dr. Loveland's dental assistants, you will either be seeing me or Rhonda. We both do exactly the same and love what we do.

We are a great team and sometimes you'll see both of us in there just helping each other.

I love dentistry because it's very rewarding. I love spending time with my son riding bikes and going swimming in my free time.

I am the first face you'll meet when walking into our office.

I started my dental career 10 years ago when I graduated from Northwest Health careers as a dental assistant. Although I enjoy working as a dental assistant my true calling is up front with Jennie. I enjoy calling the insurances and getting hard claims paid for our patients. I will go the extra mile for our patients and our office.

I have been with Dr. Loveland for about 3 years now and love every minute of it, from his dancing and singing on Fridays to our busiest days just helping each other as a team.
